Hoodoo Cornelius is the perfect PvE companion. The main aspect that makes him so useful is his Go Bananas! power, which is just Reckless Frenzy with a different name. However, keep in mind that Hoodoo Cornelius' accuracy is not too great, which is his major drawback. Therefore, you can either try to use this power so that he will not hit any Swashbuckler enemies, who could potentially end the chain of attacks, or increase the his accuracy (or lower the dodge of enemies) prior to using this power. If used correctly, multiple enemies with full health could be defeated within a single turn... using just one companion.

It would be a good idea to use Valor's Fortress on him prior to using his Go Bananas! power so that he will take half the amount of damage and, in turn, hit twice as much as he normally would be able to. He may work best on a Privateer character, though any class can use him efficiently. As for his Epics, Relentless 2, Second Chance, and Repel Boarders works very well on him. Even if he misses an enemy while using his power, Second Chance would activate, along with, most likely, three Relentless attacks. Repel Boarders, too, could trigger several Relentless hits if an enemy simply walks up to him.

The Hoodoo Bundle is a great investment if you are looking for a fierce and intimidating Witchdoctor companion. Be sure to check out the pages for the other bundle companions to see which one is right for you!
